Genetec has launched the AutoVu SharpX, the world’s smallest high-resolution license plate recognition (LPR) camera. Until now, law enforcement agencies looking to invest in advanced LPR technology were forced to compromise between size, reading performance and value. LPR cameras with superior read rates are typically large, attracting vandals and often occluding the light bar.
Until now, smaller LPR cameras have not read as well, often requiring agencies to install multiple units to obtain adequate performance. The new AutoVu SharpX, designed specifically for mobile law enforcement applications, eliminates the need for compromise. Standing at just 1.65 inches tall, the AutoVu SharpX is the smallest specialized high-resolution LPR camera on the market today.
The AutoVu SharpX achieves the industry’s highest plate capture rates by providing two to three times higher resolution than other solutions. Higher resolution per plate image means better accuracy and improved readability in bad weather, with dirty or obstructed plates, or at difficult angles. More than that, the AutoVu SharpX is capable of reading up to differential speeds over 200 MPH (320 km/h), across three lanes of traffic.
